This mentor-based program is designed to help high school students as they transition to college, and early college students as they prepare for careers. We do this by pairing community members with students who would most benefit from assistance with college and career guidance. Mentors and mentees are matched by gender, and when possible, by college major / career interest.
The ACT & SAT are college readiness assessment tests that are accepted by most U.S. Colleges. Please check with the colleges that you are planning to apply to in order to see if they have a preference/requirement for one of these tests over another. Some students may opt to take both. If you know you only need to take one of these tests, please devout your time to studying for that test. Both systems offer practice tests and on-line prep tools designed to help you achieve higher test scores... we strongly encourage you to utilize these tools. Please ask your counselor for further guidance.
There are various options available to alleviate the financial burden of college expenses. Firstly, federal aid programs, such as the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), offer grants, loans, and work-study opportunities based on financial need. These options can significantly reduce the cost of tuition and living expenses.
